Come explore our year-round adult courses. Learn about our monthly study programs in wilderness survival, homesteading, blacksmithing or archery. Meet our instructors and current students. Discover how long-term immersion in traditional skills strengthens your connection to nature and community.
At the heart of this program are our monthly weekend overnights. Each day your team trains outdoor skills with core Trackers instructors. In the evening we recreate a village while cooking over open fires. And every moment we rekindle a deep connection to nature as we learn traditional ways of living.
How It Works
Weekend Overnights Immersion students attend monthly training weekends from October to September. During this time you build experience and craft items for your primitive survival kit to use on your One Week Survival Trek. We also expect students to spend personal field time practicing their skill-sets beyond these weekends. Check out the class schedule below.
Weekly Training There are also learning opportunities every week. Immersion students and their immediate family get free admission to our Skills Evenings (every Thursday) and our Open Archery Range (every Thursday, Friday, Saturday) where you can loose arrows anytime.
One Week Survival Trek During the survival trek you use your handcrafted primitive gear along with the experience you cultivated throughout the program on a foraging expedition.
Program staff includes our top Trackers instructors. Founders, core staff and many members of the Trackers community attend. It is a learning environment rich with in-depth knowledge, experience, and opportunity.
October 2017 - September 2018 This program runs October to September. Friday evening to Sunday afternoon.
